01:22 PM ET 04.19 | Just some of the names out the door in Pittsburgh, leaving fans to wonder if the Steelers -- on the heels of a disappointing 8-8 season -- are in trouble. Free agency brought no relief. Instead of restocking the shelf, general manager Kevin Colbert issued radio silence. This well-respected and typically Teflon organization is suddenly drawing heat from critics. As Ron Cook of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette wrote, "It's hard to see the plan. Plenty of people who watch the Steelers are worried." Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is not one of them. "I'm fine with people saying that we're going to be terrible and, 'Let's overlook them,' because that means our opponents are doing the same thing. I like that. I like being the hunter."

Ben....if your opponent underestimates you, you are the hunted...not the hunter. Maybe we should worry????

Not too difficult to see which side Ben might take on the gun control debate.

Meh... Ben has won 2 superbowls, 1 less than Brady, 1 more than Peyton Manning, Favre, and Theismann, same as Elway, Staubach, and Eli Manning.

Surely you can come up with something better than overrated

you got it wrong....... when you are considered a top tier team, you are hunted. If you are a poor team, you become the hunted.

Dude: when you are considered an upper echelon team, you are the hunted. When you are considered marginal, you go on the hunt.
